Bluestacks is currently recognized as one of the best Android emulators for PC. And its fourth version has already been officially released, which will be downloaded from the office. site. But not all users are interested in the latest updates due to increased system requirements. For some, old editions are enough. And they will probably be interested in the fact that you can still download BlueStacks 1 for free.
The first version of the emulator is extremely old. Therefore, you should not expect stable work from it. Moreover, on Windows 10 it will most likely simply not start, because it was originally released for XP, Vista and Seven. Well, her Android support is not so high. If for some reason this BlueStacks does not start, then try downloading the latest update under the number four. The whole procedure is described in detail here.
First of all, download the installation package of the first version of the emulator from our website (the link is below the text). Then open it. It will take some time to unpack the files, and then the procedure itself will start directly. In the first window, you will be prompted to agree to the license terms, to do this, click on “Continue”.In the next window, you can choose the future location for the program, but it’s better to leave the home directory. Then, a selection will open to enable additional components. If any of them is disabled, then tick it. And then click on the start button. When finished, the program will open immediately. But if this does not happen, then use the shortcut that appears on the desktop. You will see an initialization procedure where various settings are made. It can last up to 5 minutes or even longer (on weaker PCs) and is only needed at the first start. The subsequent ones will be faster.
